# Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp - Page 164

Hellow all :)

How is Violectric' power with the dual outputs?

example: V100 @ 50 Ohm - 2200 mw

if plugged 2 headphones 50 Ohm, then we have 1100 mw into 1 out?

or 2200 mw into each left and right hole?

it drives the 2 headphones in parallel

so it would be 1/Rtotal=1/Rhp1+1/Rhp2 for the total equivalent resistance of both headphones, Rtotal, than you need to look how much power the amp gives in Rtotal and divide by 2, and that is how much power a single hp gets

for 2 headphones, of 50ohm impedance each, in v100, Rtotal would be 1/Rtotal=1/50+1/50

Rtotal=25 Ohm

Power of V100 into 25 Ohm ~ 1250mW

1250/2= 625mW for each of the two headphones connected

Thank's :)

and if only 1 hedaphone plugged,  it results full 1250 mw?

I see you are moving your Violectric stack...what are you getting if I may ask?

when having just one headphone all you need to know is the impedance of the headphone (25, 50, 300, 600 Ohm ???), and than look up in the manual, under specifications, how much power you get for the respective impedance, but for more than one headphone connected, you need to follow the procedure in my previous post

Come Ti Va In Riva Al (la Citta) Lago...

i was contemplating to leave head-fi waters, maybe some ciem and portable setup, but kinda starting to realize i'm to deep into it to just bail out, so ultimately i'll probably just add some more gear instead... amp, dac... seems the easier way... maybe some diy, since i have a good setup for comparison...

interesting you got rid of the hd800, i run it v800->xlr->v200, and brightness was never an issue, but i'm kind of used to harsh, edgy music and had a beyer t1 that trained (read damaged) my ears well

i'm curious about dacs and amps that wouldn't just be a trade-off in sound from my current setup...

maybe attend some meets in europe (any suggestion?)

Riva del Garda is simply awesome...and being a mountain bike and road bike addict I am in paradise!  Ride today ...  http://connect.garmin.com/activity/435262327

The HD800 was amazing in many situations but there were numerous times when it made me cringe...I find myself using my IEMS [Heir Audio5] and DX50 with a Xin SM3 OPA627 most of the time and  the combo makes me happy.

I would like to try some Audeze LCD-X with the Violectric stack but besides ordering one there is no other way for me to try one....

i see from the photos linked under your profile, looks like a paradise, passed by quite a few times but never stayed, here in the "Istria Croata" cycling is quite popular, so i like to do my fair share of mtb, cross country too

how did you connect your v800 to v200, xlr, rca?

i had the lcd2.2 and now the lcd3, while the lcd2 are forgiving, the lcd3 really are more lively in the treble, and very revealing in tonality and dynamics

Yes...V800 to V200 with XLRs...

I just did not get along with the HD800s...

Croatia is definitely on my list of places to visit..I have heard so many good things and it is pretty close to where I live.

yes i understand that, was wondering what music were you listening to and how much loud do you usually turn the volume on the v200, for the hd800? and how much pre-gain, on the v200, do you use?

I don’t know about you guys, but I always end up with something on the top of my amp.

I used to put some magazines, to protect it from scratches, but i scored some material sample heading to the trash at work and here is my new sexy looking V200.

A true beauty. What do you think, ain't she sweet?

good idea since it holds your headphone stand on its back, you don't want to scratch the expensive nextel

Sorry mate, i just live in Italy, but i don't speak the language...

Actually i should start. Shame on me.

@guido:

Man, +1 for roskodan. Your place really looks like a paradise. Those photos are something…

What's the point of nextel if not being scratch resistant?

Well, it was due for long time, but i've never found the right material. I think this is used for casino  tables, nice and soft on the other side. I think my amp feels goooood and comfy for now.

Scratch resistant, yes. Scratch proof? No. It's like using a screen protector on a modern phone that has gorilla glass.
